The cast will come off the thumb on Dec. 2, and then, according to coach Doc Rivers, the task of getting back into the rotation will intensify. Davis should be cleared for contact soon after, but when he’s ready to roll, he will have no guarantees.
As for how Davis will fit in, Rivers said, "We’ll see. He could help us clearly, but Shelden (Williams) is doing what he does. So it’s a competition. Glen has to come back and win that job.
"Shelden’s a better rebounder. They’re probably equal shooters. I think Baby’s ahead of him defensively, because he knows all the rotations and stuff. I think it’s good. There’ll be good competition when Baby comes back.
